A recent look at those far-north mastodons shows the creatures vanished from the Arctic thousands of years before earlier than researchers had thought. A...

While there is certainly room for variation in film commentary – many wonder what film a particular reviewer saw when they assigned a “rave review” to a movie which seems second class, at best.
